dragmetohell-031109Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Sam Raimi’s upcoming horror film Drag Me to Hell.  Nice to see Raimi getting back to his roots.  As to the trailer itself, my first reaction is a positive one and I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out. Raimi will be on hand at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas this weekend to premiere a work-in-progress print of the film.  The film will screened on midnight, Sunday, March 15th at the Paramount Theatre.  Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

publicenemies-johnnydepp-030309Universal Pictures has released the full trailer for Michael Mann’s Public Enemies.  The film has a terrific cast, led by Johnny Depp as outlaw John Dillinger and Christian Bale who plays the FBI’s top agent, Melvin Purvis, who’s on pursuit of Dillinger.

The trailer looks really good.  We should be in store for an action-packed depression era crime drama.

Watch the trailer after the jump.
